"I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough."

It was this quote from Nicolas Sparks that inspired KRISTEN LYNNE PHOTOGRAPHY to create this simple and elegant portrait session at the gorgeous venue of MIDDLETON PLACE. Drawing inspiration from the delicate Spanish Moss hanging from the southern oak trees and the beauty and mystery of the blooming secret gardens, she has created an intimate and feminine portrait session featuring a beautiful black vintage gown from GOSSAMER. Kristin says, Every turn through the gardens revealed another beautiful secret and she lets us in to tell her story. I love how simple and honest it is.
